A man who will stop at nothing in pursuit of the most jaw-dropping stunt imaginable, Tom Cruise may have climbed Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, but now he appears to be driving down the cliffs.
Filming began for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 7, and his last daring moment was riding a motorcycle down a long ramp and into the great blue sky below in the Norwegian fjords. Take a look below.

After attending an IMAX screening of Tenet in London and hiring two Norwegian cruise ships to host the film’s crew, Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie went to work in earnest.
This stunt took place in Helsetkopen, Møre og Romsdal, on the west coast of Norway, home to the annual World Base Race in which wingsuit racers compete to launch themselves into the ether.
With Cruise, it’s just that, you know, without the wingsuit and at 60 mph. What else could you expect from that man?
Due to COVID-19, filming was supposed to begin in Venice in February before production was stopped. It eventually began, after rehearsals at the film’s UK production base.
Nothing is known about the storyline of Mission: Impossible 7, except that it looks like it will maintain the franchise’s proud tradition of high-energy action sequences.
Cruise is back as IMF agent Ethan Hunt, along with most of the Mission: Impossible – Fallout cast, including Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, and Vanessa Kirby.
Expect to see Mission: Impossible 7 hitting theaters November 19, 2021.
Meanwhile, there are plenty of hits to look forward to now that the latest movie releases are coming to the UAE. Keep up to date here.
